Achen-Gardner Construction Monthly Newsletter February 2014 25TH ANNIVERSARY FACT February 1995 marked the completion of Achen-Gardner’s Downtown Phoenix Streetscape Project. This Design-Bid-Build project for the City of Phoenix was constructed in preparation for the 1995 NBA All-Star Game on February 12th at America West Arena (now US  Airways Center). Northsight Boulevard Substantial CompletionOur City of Scottsdale CMAR Northsight Boulevard Extension Project was substantially completed and the roundabout opened January 12. This has been such an exciting project and we are happy to see the final result. Only a few minor details remain, like the art piece that will go in the center of the roundabout. The Northsight Blvd. Extension Project improved Northsight Blvd. from just east of Hayden Rd. to Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd and Hayden Rd. from just south of Northsight Blvd. to 500 LF north of Northsight Blvd. Formerly a private street between Hayden Rd. and Frank Lloyd Wright, Northsight Blvd. became a public roadway upon completion of the improvements.  The signalization of Northsight Blvd. and Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd. along with the improved accessibility of Northsight Blvd. provides an additional through route and helps ease traffic congestion at the intersection of Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd. and Hayden Rd. The improvements also reconstructed the formerly signalized intersection of Hayden Rd. and Northsight Blvd. to a multi-lane Roundabout to improve traffic flows and mitigate back-ups.
